Stamp exhibit visitors looking at stamps There will be an activity station called “Stamp Collecting 101” that will introduce the hobby of philately to non-collectors. Postage stamps, with their colorful images and real-life stories, have fascinated millions of adults and children over the years because they have something to interest everyone—nature, science, sports, music, etc. Activities and items for children will include a scavenger hunt, “eye-spy” game and a table where children can create their own mini-album page.
